3D Movie Maker (PC)

3D Movie Maker review (PC)

Reviewed on July 09, 2004

If you're the kind who just loves getting out there and making your own home movies, but find your scope limited by the low-quality of your mummy's camcorder, then Microsoft may just have the right little tool for you! What they've given us access to is 3D Movie Maker, a simple but effective program that can easily convey that maelstrom of ideas floating about in that (beautiful) head of yours. Hosted by a purple, Scottish directorial type named McZee (most likely an off-shoot from the Barney fa...

Super Mario Advance (Game Boy Advance)

Super Mario Advance review (GBA)

Reviewed on July 09, 2004

Super Mario Advance, a dual Mario game, has crashed onto the fledgling Game Boy Advance system with a moderate amount of style. This cartridge contains two old ''classics'', Super Mario Bros. 2 and the absolutely ancient Mario Bros. These two games meld together to make a gaming experience that is at times endearing, but ultimately unfulfilling.

Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone (Game Boy Advance)

Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone review (GBA)

Reviewed on July 09, 2004

Yet another eerie hallway looms in front of you. You creep down it - ever so slowly - daring not to make a noise. Hideous gargoyles and grotesque oil paintings line the walls, making you wish you hadn’t left your invisibility cloak tucked away in the sock drawer. It’s quiet...too quiet. You can’t hear a thing above the frantic racing of your heartbeat, its rhythmic pounding even managing to drown out the chattering of your teeth. You extend a cold, clammy hand and grasp the doorknob in front of ...

Syphon Filter 3 (PlayStation)

Syphon Filter 3 review (PSX)

Reviewed on July 09, 2004

Rarely in the history of gaming has there been a more apt name for a particular game's character than Gabriel Logan. The star of the Syphon Filter franchise can indeed flit around any given landscape with the grace and agility of an archangel and, when the time comes, emerge from the wilderness and tear his unsuspecting opponents opponents apart with the ferocity of a wolverine. The first two Syphon Filter outings were major successes due largely to this intuitive combination of espionage and ac...

Final Fantasy VIII (PlayStation)

Final Fantasy VIII review (PSX)

Reviewed on July 09, 2004

As the sun sets and dusk approaches, the two tribes draw near. They're shouting, brandishing weapons, and waving silk banners of all kinds of colours. As they get closer the din rises, and insults that would strip paint off a wall are hurled backwards and forwards. Blood is going to be spilt.

Mortal Kombat II (Genesis)

Mortal Kombat II review (GEN)

Reviewed on July 09, 2004

I'm not here to lambast Mortal Kombat II for its ridiculous interpretations of the laws of physics. Some might call it nitpicking, if I were to rebuke the game for the way it's characters move as if underwater, throwing themselves around the combat arena with careless abandon, lazily sticking a leg out behind them in a vain attempt to undo their opponents. Surely it would be unjust if I were to classify MKII on the way the shadows of the combatants lift off the ground on occasion, and constantly...

Batman Returns (Genesis)

Batman Returns review (GEN)

Reviewed on July 09, 2004

The Gotham City I know is a source of mystery and wonderment. It’s an eclectic amalgamation of monolithic skyscrapers, scraping the heavens with their neon trappings; and shadowy alleys, where the hefty criminal element lurks. Countless lights punctuate the night sky – giving the desolate streets a highly misleading impression of safety - but one punctuates harder than a dozen consecutive exclamation marks. It’s a majestic motif, emblazoning itself powerfully against the stars, calling the city’...

Conker's Bad Fur Day (Nintendo 64)

Conker's Bad Fur Day review (N64)

Reviewed on July 09, 2004

Yes, you can laugh as Conker the Squirrel lurches on-screen and slices the hapless 64 logo in half. You can laugh your silly little brains out for all I care. But should you not also stop and use those shrivelled brains to think for a moment? Yes you jolly well should, ignoramus! That poor logo is just as much a motif – a telling symbol of the game to come – as it is a comic device, and don’t you forget it. Conker’s Bad Fur Day is the Norman Bates of video games. It is a game full of halves and ...

Phantasy Star Online Episode I & II review (GCN)

Reviewed on July 09, 2004

MMORPG's seem to be on the rise, except on the Gamecube. However, fear not, for there is one game that IS online. Whether or not it is worth your hard earned(or begged)cash, remains to be seen.

Everything or Nothing (PlayStation 2)

Everything or Nothing review (PS2)

Reviewed on July 08, 2004

Imagine yourself in the middle of a foreign country, with no allies within hundreds of miles and enemy troops surrounding you on all sides. Now imagine these enemy troops are about to complete the purchase of a nuclear suitcase bomb right in front of you. What do you do?

Mega Man 2 (NES)

Mega Man 2 review (NES)

Reviewed on July 08, 2004

By far the most popular game in the original Mega Man series, this is probably the most beloved of them all. Many deem it to have the best gameplay, greatest music, etc. I am one of those who disagree with that. Mega Man 2 is probably one of the better games in the series, although it's definitely not the best there is.

Final Fantasy: Mystic Quest (SNES)

Final Fantasy: Mystic Quest review (SNES)

Reviewed on July 07, 2004

Final Fantasy Mystic Quest can best be described as a slap to the face of any American fan of role-playing games. Commonly referred to as an RPG for beginners, this SNES blunder seems to be less of a tutorial game and more of an insult to a player’s intelligence.

Black Heart (Import) review (ARC)

Reviewed on July 06, 2004

It starts out so innocently. An evil wizard kidnapping a damsel. A brave knight to the rescue, determined to save the day. Leaping onto the sturdy back of his dragon mount, the chivalrous warrior departs to face whatever dangers come his way.

World of Illusion Starring Mickey Mouse & Donald Duck review (GEN)

Reviewed on July 05, 2004

This game unlocks loads of great memories of me and my best mate sitting for hours on end playing World of Illusion on the Sega Mega Drive. I was only a kid when I first played it and was instantly hooked for hours on end with the games quirky platform fun and also the ability to play my favourite Disney characters, Mickey, who had previously starred in another Mega Drive favourite of mine Castle of Illusion and for the first time ever, the raging fury of Donald Duck. The plot of...

Toejam & Earl in Panic on Funkotron review (GEN)

Reviewed on July 05, 2004

Rummaging through the amount of platform games on the Sega Genesis it was actually hard to find one that was a stand out from the crowd. Apart from the Sonic series there weren’t that many great games on it. Granted there were a few other that Sega made that were great but it seemed to me that after you went through the games developed in house it was seemingly impossible to find a good and original platform game. Sega had to play by this and after releasing and scoring with Sonic they had to ba...

Valkyrie Profile (PlayStation)

Valkyrie Profile review (PSX)

Reviewed on July 05, 2004

After playing so many role playing games, they start to become more and more similar. That’s not to say that they’re bad, it’s just that so many follow the same formula and use similar conventions, so things become stale at times. Once in a while a game offers original gameplay only to be crippled by a substandard plot, or vice versa. Surprisingly enough, Valkyrie Profile is one of the most entirely original RPGs I’ve had the pleasure of playing in a long time.

The Cyber Shinobi (Sega Master System)

The Cyber Shinobi review (SMS)

Reviewed on July 05, 2004

It’s sad, finding a flop in a series that has produced great games, the black sheep as you will. Every series has one, even the most popular games have one, Mario had Super Mario Bros. 2, Sonic had Sonic 3D blast, Zelda had Majoras Mask and Metroid had the dreaded Metroid Prime on the Gamecube. Shinobi also had one of those bad games, the twisted and battered Cyber Shinobi released in 1990 on the Sega Master System. I was upset and disappointed, as a huge fan of the series I found this one a bit...

Street Fighter (Arcade)

Street Fighter review (ARC)

Reviewed on July 05, 2004

Capcom's “Street Fighter” series was the progenitor of fighting games and today it is still respected in the hearts of beat-em-up fans and general gamers alike. When you think of Street Fighter I guarantee you will immediately think of Street Fighter 2 Championship edition, possibly the most famous fighting game in history. The original Street Fighter however remains almost forgotten now probably due to the reason it mainly lay in the arcades of the late eighties and was knocked aside for the go...

Columns (Genesis)

Columns review (GEN)

Reviewed on July 04, 2004

Columns puts you in a position where you have to stack jewels in sets of three on top of each other. If you get three jewels of the same shape and colour in a stack, no, a column then you will get a nice range of points. You can also get them diagonally as well as vertically. When the jewels are levered down you have a few seconds to change the combination of the jewels enabling you to connect more often.
